Morning Prayer of Saint Basil the Great

 ◊  Saint Basil the Great, pray for us

As I rise from sleep, I thank You, O Holy Trinity, for through Your great goodness and patience You have not been angry with me, an idler and sinner, nor have You destroyed me with mine iniquities, but has shown Your usual love for mankind; and when I was prostrate in despair, You have raised me up to keep the morning watch and glorify Your power. And now enlighten my mind’s eye, and open my mouth that I may meditate on Your words, and understand Your commandments, and do Your will, and hymn You in heartfelt confession, and sing praises to Your all-holy name: of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

O Come, let us worship God, our King.

O Come, let us worship and fall down before Christ, our King and God.

O Come, let us worship and fall down before Christ himself, our King and God.
